1. Inflammation in the arteries. This is caused by insufficient anti-oxidants in the diet from food, or from supplements. It IS this inflammation that causes calcification. LDL,. the ‘bad cholesterol’, (Low Density Lipo-Protein), is merely the marker for the amount of ongoing inflammation. 2 egg yolks daily, (preferrably eaten raw, the shells well washed, the whites cooked), contain sufficient anti-oxidants such as vitamins, selenium, the amino acids l-cysteine, l-tyrosene etc. to PREVENT arterial inflammation, thus.. normalising LDL and.. stopping calcification.

Statin drugs artificially change the LDL marker by intefering with normal liver or gut function, but, lacking in anti-oxidants statins do NOT even slow calcification.

Egg yolks are also high vitamin K2, that needed to direct calcium into hard tissues, bones, and away from soft tissues, arteries. Yolks are also high in the brain nutrients phosphotidyl serine and choline. Peptides in egg yolks lower high blood pressure. There is about 0.25 mg each of lutein and zeaxanthin in one raw egg yolk in a highly absorbable, nearly ideal form. Both essential for healthy eyes. (Kale is very high in lutein, BUT nutrients in veges are tightly bound in the cells, and difficult to absorb, and, kale has 0 zeaxanthin)!

2 egg yolks eaten at breakfast stabilize blood sugars throughout the day. That prevents the sudden blood sugar drop after lunch and dinner, causing extreme sleepiness and/or fatigue.

Idiotic healthy eating advice is for ONLY 2 yolks a week!

2. High blood homocysteine. This is lowered with vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid, a B vitamin. Butter and cream synthesise vitamin B6 in the gut through the healthy gut bacteria. (A large scale, long term study showed that 2 groups who were seperated geographically by their work, but were of the same genetic origin, the same age group and same activity level, ended up on different diets. The Northern ones cooked entirely with butter and ate lots of animal protein and fat. They even smoked much more than the Southerners. The Southerners ended up with a pure vegetarian diet. The Southerners had 15X(!!) the heart disease incidence of the Notherners. Malhotra S L, Dr. 11X published in Lancet. Butter is also high in vitamin K2.

Butter contains glycospingolipids, a special category of fatty acids that protect against gastro-intestinal infection, especially in the very young and the elderly; a good source of iodine, in highly absorbable form; Vitamins A and D in butter are essential to the proper absorption of calcium and hence necessary for strong bones and teeth; raw butter has The Wulzen factor, a nutrient unique to butter that protects joints against calcification, as well as hardening of the arteries, cataracts and calcification of the pineal gland, BUT is destroyed during pasteurization.

Butter contains the omegas in perfect proportion, arichidonic acid, short and medium chain fatty acids, and conjugated linoleic acids Also present are selenium, iodine, manganese, zinc, chromium, and lecithin.

Idiotic ‘healthy’eating advice is to restrict/omit butter, cream, and full fat milk products.

Saturated fats compose 40% of the double cell membrane of your trillions of cells. A high sat-fat diet is essential to prevent easy entry into the cell of carcinogens such as viruses, heavy metals, dyes etc that damage DNA. (Clark H R, PhD ND, 1995). Cholesterol is essential for the formation of major hormones, especially testosterone, the male sex hormone, vitamins A and D,

3. High triglycerides. Blood fats that are elevated by too many carbs, especially sugar, and alcohol. Idiotic ‘healthy eating’ advice is to stuff yourself with carbs all day ie grains 6X daily and unlimited fruit and sugar.

Grass fed animal fat is high in health-giving Omega3, conjugated linoleic acid and long chain fatty acids.

The misinformation is IMO to market the useless and toxic statin drugs, for the doc surely can’t tell you that high saturated fat foods prevent, and in the next breath tell you to take drugs to lower the bad cholesterol.

As you note fruit and veg cannot do the trick, and..the fruit fattens! The photo of the obese person is misleading as obesity is NOT involved.
